Genre splicers and hotly tipped London quartet The One Hundred have proudly confirmed today that they have signed a deal with Spinefarm Records, a subsidary label part of the Universal Music Group, that looks after acts such as Rammstein, Bullet For My Valentine, 36 Crazyfists, Atreyu, and Nightwish to name a few.
Through the label the band will be releasing their yet-to-be-titled debut full-length record, of which they’re currently putting the finishing touches towards. Frontman Jacob Field had the following to say on behalf of the band:
“Not long ago, we played our first shows, and even less time ago we put out five songs, hoping people might take notice. We’ve had one hell of a ride so far and it really is just the beginning. We can’t wait to unleash some new music and we’re incredibly excited to be working with Spinefarm globally to achieve our goals.”
Speaking of their decision to bring The One Hundred onboard, the label’s Head of A&R Dante Bonutto also had a few words to share:
“The One Hundred are impressive on a number of different levels, two of the main ones being their refusal to be limited by genre, plus their desire to set the songwriting bar very high. It’s exciting to work with a band where you can think on broad terms, and where you can look to compete and make a difference. These guys are ready to leave their mark… and they rock!”
Tentative track titles at the moment include ‘Monster’ and ‘Disengage’, but more information surrounding the band’s debut album will be confirmed as and when it develops.
